The Events Calendar (Free Version) + Divi
We originally made our plugin specifically for the free version of The Events Calendar because there was no way to use it in Divi, our favorite builder. We realized it was impossible, and that’s where it all began.
There was no immediate need to make it for their Pro version because technically you could use shortcodes which only are included in their pro version. So we set out to make a way to display and customize events from The Events Calendar free version in Divi. Everything in the free version of The Events Calendar can be displayed in our custom Divi modules.
Gradually, we have added support for specific features in their pro version and various addons they offer. You can check everything our modules support in their pro version and addons below.
Beyond Free Version Into Pro + Addons
As you can imagine, we get tons of feature requests. As time went on, we started getting more and more requests for compatibility with the “pro” version of The Events Calendar as well as some of their popular addons like Events Tickets Plus and Filter Bar.

Recurring Events Support
In Divi Events Calendar update version 2.1 released April 30, 2021, we introduced support for the highly requested Recurring Events in both our Events Feed and Events Calendar modules. These can be included in the feed or calendar with a simple toggle switch in our modules. Keep in mind, Recurring Events are only part of The Events Calendar Pro. In version 2.4 we introduced a setting to choose the number of recurring events to show at one time within a series.
In Divi Events Calendar update version 2.6 released February 16, 2023, we introduced support for the new Series feature in The Events Calendar Pro. This means you can now show events in the Events Feed module using the Custom Events Select setting based on checkboxes for each series on the site.
Tickets & RSVP Module
In version 2.1 released April 30, 2021, we also introduced a very basic Events Ticket module. At this time, it is in BETA and only meant for showing the output of the free Event Ticket plugin by The Events Calendar. Notice again that this is for their free version. Please check their plugin listing for features. Anything related to the tickets and RSVP are NOT related to us, so at this time any questions will be directed to them. However, we are currently working on a major update to this module and hope to release it in early 2022.
Events Search & Filter
In Divi Events Calendar update version 2.2 released November 12, 2021, we introduced a brand new Events Filter module. This module is phenomenal, and much better than the Filter Bar from The Events Calendar because you have tons of Divi settings. At this time, this module is designed to work only with the Events Feed module.
Organizer & Venue Dynamic Events + Pages + Links
In Divi Events Calendar update version 2.3 released March 3, 2022, we introduced more integration with The Events Calendar Pro. In their pro version, you can have Organizer and Venue pages to show relevant events, and they also have Divi Theme Builder templates. So now in version 2.3 our Events Feed and Events Calendar modules work with the Dynamic Events setting on the Organizer and Venue pages. We also added the ability to make the venues and organizers names links so that they go directly to their respective pages. This includes many link options to enable or disable the links and open in new tabs or not.
In Divi Events Calendar update version 2.4 released August 10, 2022, we introduced support for the Virtual Events addon by The Events Calendar. This includes settings to show or hide virtual and hybrid events in the Events Feed, Events Calendar, Events Filter, and also most importantly for displaying the virtual event information and videos in the Events Page module on the single event pages.
